European Commission Funding and Tenders Portal replaces Participant Portal

Posted on: 17/12/2018

On November 30th the European Commission announced a new Funding & Tenders Portal that has replaced the Participant Portal.

The portal will become the single entry point for finding and managing EU grants and procurement contracts, by covering all centrally managed programmes by the start of the next EU multiannual programme period in 2021.

It includes a new layout and graphic design, it has been equipped with an improved keyword search function with new features and search behaviour, it reflects its multi-programme coverage and integrates the calls for tenders.

Participant Portal URL users will be automatically redirected to the Funding & Tenders Portal, and when accessing bookmarked pages on the Participant Portal users will have a message on the top of the page inviting them to switch to the new Funding & Tenders Portal.

The Participant Portal will still be available for some time before being completely deactivated, and there is currently no deadline for deactivation as yet.

Stafford Lloyd, H2020 National Contact Point for ICT and Future & Emerging Technologies presents some insights into how to navigate the new portal and some tips and tricks for getting the most out of it in this video.
